Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"The Philosophy of Magic Carousel Infant Center, Preschool and Kindergarten is to provide a warm, loving, comfortable, and inquisitive environment. Magic Carousel will allow children to explore a variety of developmental and age appropriate materials that are selected to emphasize exploration and discovery. We believe that children learn through active manipulation of their environment and educational experiences. Each day we help the children reach their highest potential possible. Each child will benefit from our program, we provide a wide range of experiences that contribute to their physical fitness and muscular coordination and we make every effort to accommodate each child's individual needs. We are dedicated to enhancing the well being of children and their families through developmental promotion and culturally sensitive educational services and programs. "
